I've just created local fork of buildbot repo and just commit everything I
need to same repository (in "own" branch). 

So I don't use buildbot tarballs at all. Every node just pulls from master
repo before startup. 

In such case upgrade to new release means just pull from "upstream" repo
and merge.

Benefits: Easy to trac configuration changes together with buildbot
changes, easy to update/rollback in case of some issues, etc.
